I have also been knitting for over 30 years and am at a complete loss after the set up row instructions for the increase rows. My comments are exactly the same as LauraAK. 

I am anxious to get this sweater started as i love the pattern.  Any help available?

I think this sweater is beautiful. I bought the yarn and I'm starting the pattern and although it seems like a complex sweater, I figured I could handle it. I started knitting over 30 years ago. I can do this. I made it through the "Shape raglan: Set-up row" but the instructions on the "Inc row" don't make sense to me.

On the set-up row, I ended the row by placing a marker and then purling 3 stitches. The next row, which is worked back and forth, says, "Inc row (RS)*Work to 1st before m, RLI, k1, sl m, k1, LLI"rep from * once more." So, what am I "working" until 1st before m? Am I knitting? Am I working a pattern? Am I doing RLI, k1, sl m (I tried that but it doesn't make sense because the marker shows up after the third stitch.) 

On a separate matter, I wasn't sure what RLI and LLI were. So,  I did a search on the KnittingDaily.com/glossary and found a link to a video. From what I could follow in the video, you knit first, then Right Lift Increase (RLI) on the stitch below the stitch you just knit and then you knit that, but your instructions say RLI and then k1. Your instructions are working the RLI, k1 on one stitch, so I'll experiment and see what works for me.

So, back to the pattern for the Inc row, after comparing this row to the previous row, it looks like I need to do something on the first two stitches and then on the stitch before the marker, k1 and then RLI and then sl m. There are 10 stitches after the first marker and before the next marker. I need to k1, LLI (Which I will do in reverse: LLI, k1, based on the order in the video I referred to earlier.) then I have 9 more stitches to do the following: "rep from * once more." Once again, I am not sure what I am working up until one stitch before the marker.

The center section makes more sense as it says to work the back chart over 16 st and I see the back chart in the instructions and verified that there are 16 stitches. It's just the very ends and the raglan section that I am not clear on.

I would love to get answers to my questions above as I am eager to knit the sweater. Please let me know if this is the proper way to ask for directions or if there is another way preferred.

Thanks for your time.
